50mm Super Takumar

I recently stumbled upon a 50mm Super Takumar selling for approx $60 (I'm not from the US). There is some wear on the body, but the glass seemed okay (no dust, no fungus). Would you consider buying it?

Pretty much all of the old 50mm lenses are good when shooting video. If it's in good shape and it will fit your camera, then why not ?

I picked up an old Canon FD 50mm f/1.8 used lens for $25, and it produces a great image. I also own two Nikon 50mm f/1.4 AI-S lenses that I use all the time for corporate interviews. All of these lenses are great for video.
